I think the obvious source of the "shimmy" is the rim itself. If the rim is not completely true (which the one you showed is not), it will most likely be felt at the steering wheel. This probably won't affect your performance, but it will affect the feel. There's an easy way to tell if there's too much play in a tie rod end ... that being, is there ...

Thanks for all the responses. We found the problem. I ordered the rear tires for the car that were the correct size...I didn't realize that they had an incorrect sized tire on the vehicle when I bought it. So I ended up with two different diameter tires on an AWD vehicle which I found out doesn't work. Apparently running different sized tires on AWD vehicles ...

P0105 is a MAF electrical fault. This is most likely the real issue going on, as without the MAF (or intermittent MAF signal), it would drive the computer batty trying to keep the engine running normally. Your description lends right to this. Considering the fault code, I'd suggest you take a look at the wiring at the MAF and up into the wiring harness. ...

When tires are put on rims the wheels are put on a machine which spins them to show how the weight is unbalanced, and where to stick on weights to make the weight balanced. If those weights come off you can ...

Danger is a very subjective term but I'd say that a worn bushing is unlikely to lead to a catastrophic failure in the short term. Usually it's the rubber or plastic portion of the bushing that is encased in a steel housing. So that allows the held part to wobble about and cause handling and steering issues. As long as your handling and steering are still ...

A failed engine mount could possibly cause this symptom. You could get someone to watch the engine as you select drive and reverse while stationary with the brakes on. If the engine moves excessively then it is likely an engine mount. Make sure the spectator stands to the side of the vehicle, not in front of it.
